Update: Double Match Day is Friday, September 7th. For ever $10 gift, Meijer will match with an additional $20 - providing CAH with a $30 donation.
People in our community continue to struggle every day to pay their bills and put food on their tables. Some are even forced to choose between the two, a heartbreaking decision that no one should have to make. We are pleased to announce that Community Action House has joined forces with the Meijer Simply Give hunger relief program this fall to help fill that void for our local families.
Each Simply Give campaign helps more than 240 food pantries in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Wisconsin keep their shelves stocked with food for those in need. But it also fosters a sense of community by encouraging customers to purchase $10 Simply Give donation cards, which are then converted into Meijer food-only gift cards and given to the local food pantry selected by the store.
Community Action House will benefit from donation cards purchased at the North Holland Township Meijer Store now through Sept. 15, located at 3320 West Shore Drive (map it). They support hot meals served every day at the Community Kitchen, food pantry visits throughout the year, our Thanksgiving Baskets in November, and ongoing Monthly Food Distributions which help stabilize food sources for many of the elderly, families with children, and migrant workers.
I want to encourage you to help us fulfill our mission of helping feed the hungry in Holland by purchasing a food donation card during your next shopping trip. Tell your friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers because every dollar makes a difference.
And when we give, Meijer gives. For the seventh consecutive year, Meijer will contribute at least $1 million to the 2018 Simply Give program.
We are very encouraged about this opportunity to serve the hungry in the Holland community. Thank you.
